Trump May Not Be Able To Donate Money To Harvey Victims After All

By Alan Jude Ryland

Last week, President Donald Trump announced he would donate $1 million of his own funds to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, seemed to slow-walk that promise on Friday when asked where the funds would come from.

"He has not finalized where all of that will go," Sanders said at the time. "I was actually going to use that as a perfect segue to remind everybody if you have suggestions, he is very open to hearing those. We've got a couple, but please send more if you have them."

Journalist David Fahrenthold, who won a Pulitzer Prize last year for his investigations into Trump's philanthropy, reminded his followers that it's unlikely the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which the president chairs, would make the donation while still under the scrutiny of the office of Eric Schneiderman, the New York Attorney General.
